The collection, which is available all year, was created by Sophia Loren, Millie Bobby Brown, Ana DuVernay, Salma Hayek, Lana Condor, Janet Mock, Yalitza Aparicio, Laurie Nunn and Petra Costa. “This collaboration is about taking on the challenge of telling women’s stories and showing women in all their diversity. It’s about making visible the invisible, and proving that only by fully representing and including women on screen, behind-the-camera and in our narratives overall, society will truly flourish,” Anita Bhatia, UN Women deputy executive director, said in a statement. Among the Netflix programs available in the collection includes hit shows like Orange Is the New Black, Unbelievable, and Sex Education, films like Bird Box, Roma, and Marriage Story, and documentaries that include Miss Americana and What Happened Miss Simone. Netflix (3) Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle and More to Headline Netflix Comedy Festival ‘Netflix Is a Joke Fest’ OITNB alumna Laverne Cox said in a statement, “Having a world where everyone is truly represented is about true democracy. And truly seeing ourselves allows us to envision endless possibilities for ourselves and each other. Orange Is the New Black is the first project where I felt genuinely empowered as a woman thanks to the woman at the helm of the show, Jenji Kohan, and the many women directors, writers, producers, and crew members as well as the stories that centered diverse women in an unprecedented way. This show created a space and platform for me as a black openly trans woman that created space for other openly trans women of all races to be truly seen in the depth of our humanity”. The collection is available at Netflix.com/BecauseSheWatched or by searching Because She Watched on Netflix. Every title will be labeled “XXXX’s Women’s Day Pick” so viewers can easily see who picked which story.
